Our Story

Established in 2014

In 2012, Mitchell Elworthy, the visionary founder of The Lighting Outlet, embarked on a journey that began with selling lighting products on eBay while working a full-time job in a warehouse. Mitchell quickly recognised the vast potential of online sales, realising that products could reach customers all across Australia. This insight led him to identify a market gap, and soon, lighting manufacturers saw the opportunity to partner with him to move their stock, which traditional brick-and-mortar stores hesitated to handle.
Within just two years, The Lighting Outlet transitioned to offering contemporary and trade products and established its own warehouse and showroom in Matraville, Sydney. The company gained momentum, both locally and online, through its website. The Lighting Outlet became known for its friendly and knowledgeable staff, earning a reputation for exceptional customer service.
By the end of 2017, The Lighting Outlet had expanded significantly, employing a team of over 15 staff members. By 2020, the company had outgrown its existing premises, prompting the acquisition of a new warehouse. This development allowed The Lighting Outlet to operate on a scale comparable to wholesalers, an uncommon feat in the Australian retail lighting industry. This capacity enabled faster stock distribution to customers and the ability to procure products at container prices, which were then passed on to customers as cost savings.
Today, The Lighting Outlet stands as a leading supplier of quality lighting products in Australia and New Zealand, representing over 60 renowned global brands. With a dedicated team of over 30 staff members across both countries, the company has been thriving for over a decade and shows no signs of slowing down in its commitment to lighting up homes and spaces.
